True dental emergencies can be scary and overwhelming for anyone experiencing the sharp or nagging pain of a tooth ache. The key is to remain calm and determine the correct steps to take.
The most common causes of tooth pain are:
- debris trapped under the gum
- a lost filling or crown
- a cracked or broken tooth
- an infection
We can help
A limited exam and x-ray can quickly determine the problem and the appropriate treatment necessary to relieve pain and fix the cause. This may include a prescription for an antibiotic or an over-the-counter medication to help alleviate pain until the restorative procedure is scheduled.
